Photo of Syracuse police without masks causing police chief to speak out

first_imgOfficials say the photo in question was taken at the scene of a crash Thursday. Syracuse police officers and Onondaga County deputies appear in the photo. Police Chief Kenton Buckner says the photo is under investigation. The issue is following Governor Andrew Cuomo’s announcement limiting indoor and outdoor gatherings in the state to 10 people. Chief Buckner said, “I’m responsible for these 401 police officers. It appears we have not been following our own rules and again, if I can confirm that, there will be consequences for it.” SYRACUSE (WBNG) — A photo of police officers in Syracuse is causing the city’s top cop to speak out because none of the officers pictured are wearing masks while on the job. As COVID-19 cases continue to rise in the state and close to 5,000 new cases and 21 deaths were reported on Wednesday, the photo is causing residents and the Syracuse police chief concern. Chief Buckner said there are 14 officers that currently have the coronavirus. Buckner also said the virus is the number one killer of police.last_img read more

Hobbling Root fires England to easy win over Bangladesh

first_imgBy Ed OsmondLONDON, England (Reuters) – Joe Root shrugged off an ankle injury to hit a superb unbeaten 133 and lead England to a comfortable eight-wicket victory over Bangladesh in the opening Champions Trophy game at The Oval yesterday.Alex Hales made 95 and captain Eoin Morgan 75 not out as hosts England overhauled their target of 306 with 16 balls to spare, the highest successful run-chase in the tournament’s history.The day had started badly for England, bidding to win their first global 50-over trophy, when all-rounder Chris Woakes limped off due to a side strain after bowling two overs.Tamim Iqbal struck a fluent 128 and shared a 166-run partnership with Mushfiqur Rahim to push Bangladesh to a competitive total of 305 for six.Jason Roy’s wretched run continued when he was brilliantly caught at short fine leg for one but Root and Hales calmed England’s nerves with a second-wicket partnership of 159.Hales was the chief aggressor but straight after hitting a four and a six off consecutive balls from Sabbir Rahman he fell five runs short of his century, caught at deep mid-wicket.Root, hobbling between the wickets, manoeuvred the ball around calmly and he and Morgan were always in control of the chase in an unbroken partnership of 143.Root posted his 10th one-day international century, off 115 deliveries, and hit one six and 11 fours in his highest score in this format of the game.Morgan had won the toss in sunny conditions and asked Bangladesh to bat, but Tamim and Soumya Sarkar carefully added 56 for the first wicket before the latter was caught on the cover point boundary for 28.Imrul Kayes, on 19, was brilliantly caught by a diving Mark Wood at mid-on but Mushfiqur and Tamim gradually accelerated the scoring rate with crisp strokes around the ground to wild cheers from the pockets of flag-waving Bangladesh fans in a lively crowd.Ben Stokes and Tamim were involved in a verbal altercation as tempers frayed but the left-hander reached his century off 124 balls, including two sixes and 11 fours.Tamim skied Liam Plunkett to wicketkeeper Jos Buttler and Mushfiqur was caught in the deep for 79 off the next ball, allowing England to restrict the boundary flow in the closing overs and keep the Bangladesh total down.Australia and New Zealand are the other teams in Group A with the top two advancing to the semi-finals.last_img read more
